play, all of the teams represented

have shown a high degree of develop
ment in tho basic principles. Suro
and swfft passing of the bull, along
with the ability of fast floor covering,
are very evident in all of the games.
But the greatest attainment of tho
participators Booms to be the art of
goal shooting. The ball 1b always in
great danger of rolllpg Into tho hoop

TEN YEARS WROUGHT CHANGE
Hope of Nation Is In Young Men,
Many of Whom Are Being
William W. Lockwood, general sec
retary of the Shanghai, China, Young
Men's Christian association, upoko
last night at tho Y. W. C. A. rooms.
In telling of the strides that China Iiub
made within tho pnst ten yours and
especially the last flvo years, Lock
wood said- that persons who had vis
ited China so far back as ten years
and attempted now to toll of condi
tions there knew nothing about tho
situation. China is a rapidly chang
ing country. Every yonr sees great
advancement in all commercial, edu
cational" and religious activities.
Tho government of China 1b at tho
prOBont tlmo-fn"atransltlonal pcrloH:
It is In n state of progressive unrest.
"By tho close of 1912 tho govornmont
of China will huvo boon complotoly
changed from ono of tho mlddlo ages
to ono of tho most modorn of this ngo
of civilization," declared tho speaker.
Tho streets cars run in Shnnghnl
much as thoy do in tho United States.
Near them will bo found tho old fash
ioned sedan chair. Railroad trains
aro beginning to revolutionize China,
and modorn buildings are being con
structed. In fact all customs and all
styles in China aro changing.
Mr. Lockwood told of tho introduc
tion of tho X-ray into China. Two
machines wore Bhipped from tho
United States. Mr. Robertson, an
American Y. M. C. A. secretary, In
Icbb than a day put tho two broken
machines togothor, making ono por
feet piece of apparatus. From that
tlmo on Robertson became the trust
ed advisor to tho nobility of China,
for thoy saw their bones photographed
nnd wero both astonished nnd im
pressed. Young Men Hope of China.
In his closing remarks Mr. Lock
wood snld that tho hope of China lay
in tho young men. Many of tho foro
moBt youncr men aro now in American
colleges training to become teach ors,
heads of railways, bankers, engineers,
ministers nnd leaders of public
thought This movement was started
when tho United' States rofunded 'thir
teen million dollars to China on ac
count of an ovorchargo in settling tho
affairs at tho close of tho Boxer up
rising. Tho Chinese government sot
aside that money to send young men
abroad for education. That was thq
first step toward tho now China com
mercially, just as tho coming of tho
Christian missionary was tho first stop
towurd tho now China morally.
